Continuing the journey to Veilstone City, Ash and the others are at a Pokémon Center watching a contest on TV (and to give time for Ash and Pikachu to rest after eating too much), where they see Kenny win his second ribbon, which upsets Dawn. They then reveal that the next contest will be held in Solaceon Town, and Dawn decides to start training for that contest. Ash also starts to train for his next gym battle. Zoey arrives at the center and decides to help Dawn train. During the training, Ash’s Aipom and Dawn’s Buizel are distracted by the other’s training, and so Zoey suggests that they trade them. Ash and Dawn start to think about the trade, and when Team Rocket attacks, they decide to use the other pokémon as a test to help decide what they should do.
